Example text

In particular, the radiation flux could be channeled in one direction by a very intense magnetic field; then the observed pulses would be due to the rotation of the star. If the star is more massive than about 10 solar masses, it collapses without exploding. Nothing can stop the collapse. When the stellar radius becomes less than THE OBSERVATIONAL BASIS OF NUCLEAR ASTROPHYSICS 11 a critical value, the 'Schwarzschild radius'* which is computed in the frame of the General Relativity, the radiation itself cannot get out of the star; it becomes a black hole.

1966, Intelligent Life in the Universe, Dell Pub!. , New York. , New York. CHAPTbR III THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE One of the basic facts that nuclear astrophysics tries or hopes to explain is the chemical composition of the observable universe, namely the relative proportion of the chemical elements classified a century ago by the Russian chemist Mendeleev. Before displaying the main trends of this chemical composition, let us briefly recall the main techniques which are used by the astrophysicists to determine this composition.

Allow in some conditions to determine indirectly element abundances. 35 THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE be seen. The relative abundances of the atoms in the material can be derived from the relative intensities of the lines. Contrary to what we would suppose at first hand, the method is not as straightforward as one would like. The spectroscopic methods can be summarized in the following way: the plate presenting the spectrogram of a given object is analyzed by microdensitometry techniques which give for every observed wavelength the amount of radiation collected by the plate.
